World Bee Day is a day to raise awareness of bees and the incredible things they do, observed on 20th May each year. These tiny creatures are responsible for spreading the seeds of plants, flowers, and crops that maintain our ecosystems and biodiversity, not to mention our sources of food. As skincare connoisseurs, we’re also conscious of the way bees have benefited and enriched skincare; Honey, Propolis, and Royal Jelly are nourishing ingredients that aid the skin in countless ways, including amping up glowiness and strengthening skin barriers. In celebration of World Bee Day, explore our curation of the best Bee-related skincare essentials that bring the glowy, healthy and strong skin of your dreams to life. No bees were harmed in the making of these products - keep scrolling to discover the picks.
